Please don't say that! Somebody might go ahead and upload that garbage, which isn't even PD!

Oops! Well, there's one thing even worse than Pink Lady and Jeff. A local small town TV show in the 60s called Classroom Camera.

I bet $5 that "Classroom Camera" wasn't as bad as "Today Tonight", though! Nothing is as bad as "Today Tonight" and "A Current Affair"! They make "My Mother the Car" look oscar-worthy! They make "Small Wonder" look oscar-worthy!

Classroom Camera was pretty embarrassing... Here's a "slideshow" from the TV station that ran it in the 60s. I just found this and it sure took me back to the station I grew up watching and our town's own TV personalities:

"Classroom Camera" couldn't have been as racist, sexist, smug, materialistic, pseudo-intellectual, offensive, condescending, annoying, and outright moronic as "Today Tonight" or "A Current Affair" currently is. They truely are shows so bad, they make "The Brady Bunch Hour" look like "Studio One".

Oh hey, I'm not arguing with you. There is absolutely NOTHING in the way of today's TV programming that I want to see. I don't have cable, not even an antenna. Anytime I turn on my TV, it's strictly to watch DVDs. Either home-made discs or Alpha Video/Mill Creek product.

The funniest thing about Classroom Camera (other than being on the show once with my school's marching band), was how tiny the studio was, compared to how huge it looked on TV at home. We walked in and I looked around and said, "THIS is IT!?" My introduction to the fantasy-land of the studio.

I admit there are some "current" or at least "recent" shows I like (such as an adorable early 2000s show I'm getting on DVD soon about a cuddly half-demon), but "Today Tonight" and "A Current Affair", which have been running for some time, are amazing in the sense that they started off rubbish, and yet get worse each season. "A Current Affair" has been running since the 1970s, and is worse with each year, so you can see how bad the show must be.
